If Nobel prize macroeconomist\’s work has no \’direct implications for the current situation\’ what\’s the point of it? http://ht.ly/6SLW1
Erm, celebration of advancement of knowledge maybe?
Honouring of those who have advanced human knowledge?
Or are we to assume the different argument? That he\’s not referring to the Nobel, but the the research?
What? All research must be immediately applicable? Umm, doesn\’t that rather destroy universities?
No, please, Richard, do come and tell us what you mean here.
